It's all about ME!

Variant E has tagged me. I am new to his blog. He seems intense and interesting and has a strange affection for red polyester pants. He is also within driving distance. I think it's safer for everyone if I just go ahead and do the meme.
It is somewhat similar to a tag I did quite a while ago and in that one I inserted one lie in each group of answers. I enjoyed lying to you all and seeing who could catch it so I think I will do it again, 'cept on some I will tell one truth and three lies and on other I will do three truths and one lie.

Four jobs I have had or currently have in my life:
1. English teacher
2. Volunteer for the county Republican headquarters
3. Raspberry picker
4. Activities Director

Four Countries I have been to:
1. Scotland
2. France
3. Spain
4. Mexico

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Eugene, Oregon
2. Sebastopol, CA
3. Disneyland, CA
4. The deck of a cruise ship

Four foods I like to eat:
1. Thai
2. Indian
3. Italian
4. Vegan

Four personal heroes-past or present:
1. Margaret Meade
2. Newt Gingrich
3. W.C. Fields
4. Lizzie Borden

Four books I have read or am currently reading:
1. Dante’s Inferno
2. Where the Red Fern Grows
3. Huckleberry Finn
4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Four to Tag :
1. All the people who read my blog.
2. All the people who don’t read my blog.
3. All the people who ought to read my blog.
4. All the people who want to do it.

P.S. Also, if you would so kind, leave a topic suggestion at the end of your post for the flash fiction I am going to do on Friday. I'm fresh out of fodder. Thanks

You know you love Newt Gingrich and all things Republican.

Too funny.

Flash fiction: emmmmm....something that involves a shopping cart in a parking lot. Why is it there? Where is it going? What's the story of the person who put it there?

Variant E said...

Lizzie Borden? Suddenly I wish you weren't in driving distance! I like that you've been to two countries I haven't!

What's a flash fiction? How about Sea Horse. You just can't find a good literary piece on the Sea Horse!

Seamus said...

Raspberry picker??? Well...there's your sign! Flash picker!

Dan said...

A raspberry picker? That's so cool!

I think I would fail miserably at this job. I'd stuff my face, pockets and every other orifice with raspberries, putting my employer out of business. Raspberries rule!

ARM said...

Ohho!! Aren't you the witty little one? I would LOVE to see your contributions as a volunteer to the republican headquarters.

goldennib said...

You were telling the truth when ever you referred to Republicans, right?

Whenever I'm really stuck for an idea or too lazy to think on my own, I go to a random word generator and take the first three nouns it produces. It's fun.

S said...

You are so NOT out of fodder, you damsel you!

I first saw you picking berries in Orlando
And all day you kept your ladder close to mine....

Lizzie Borden, that's who I want my daughter's hero to be when she gets to be "dating age" which is about 35.

lime said...

Breazy said...

Hey Logo! How are you ? Good here. I can just about guess which are the lies and truths of each question..lol!

Hope you have a good day!

Logophile said...

Jocelyn~ Aw man, you caught me:p

VE~ I will tell you a story in 55 words about sea horse, watch and be, um, well, probably not amazed but with luck at least not totally put off.

Seamus~ Tee hee, I decided really young that manual labor was NOT my bag.

Dan~ They make fabulous jam too, mmmmm

Arm~ Priceless, my contributions are always priceless :p

Goldennib~ You are slick, oooh yes you are, good idea about the random words, I like it!

Susie~ Oh, I like that, running with it!

Furiousball~ It's important to have ambitions for your children.

Lime~ :p Too obvious?

breazy~ Yup, you've been around a while, I bet you can tell! Have a good day yourself, sweetie!

tsduff said...

Now tell me how you enjoyed Dante's Inferno? Tee hee... a nicely rounded meme - ALL of it!

Do a wild and funny flash 55 about what we all dream of... a get-away.

Dorky Dad said...

Oh, and for your Flash Fiction idea, write about rummaging through Lime's closet while she's busy preparing egg rolls in the kitchen.

Logophile said...

Terry~ Good 55 topic, I like it. You want to know the strange part? Our of those four, Inferno IS the only one Ive read :p

Dorky Dad~ I dream someday of having Lime cook for me, but eggrolls have never been on the list, hmmm....

Gawpo said...

You included Vegan. That's funny. I thought you said four FOODS you'd like to eat. Hmmm.
